The Presidential inauguration is put on hold--maybe indefinitely.
When a top diplomat--and America's next president--is kidnapped while out of the country, the government keeps it a secret. But when he is returned a little worse for wear, the real trouble is only starting. When his doctors check him over, they discover delicate surgery has been performed. With a few more exams, they find something about President-elect Jack Melendez that the nation shouldn't know. Working the problem as quickly as they can, the Secret Service, the military, and politicians far and wide seek to join forces with the one person who can save the day: Dr. June Kato.
But saving his life--and the top levels of government--from death and destruction isn't going to be easy.
Neurosurgeon June Kato is on a much needed break from her demanding career. When feds come to the door, their smiles just a little too contrived, they convince her to listen to their story. Having had enough trouble with the 'establishment' in her life, she only wants to be left alone. Officers in stiff military uniforms enter the picture turning the thumbscrews, until she gives in and signs on to lead the team in life saving surgery on the President-elect. But can she keep up with the flurry of events that lie ahead? And will she survive the test the entire team will face?
There is plenty of action in this page turner, with a surprise ending nobody expects, especially June!
